NEW YORK- History has shown that in times of economic crisis, individuals' problems with drugs and alcohol skyrockets. As such, there is a growing need for therapeutic support of these individuals.
As economic times toughen, the response to stress for those at-risk tends to be the use of a substance that distorts their current reality. Relapses from past alcohol and/or drug abuse during these times are always at an all-time high compared to times of economic growth.
A New England addiction treatment facility has expanded its Drug Relapse Program to help individuals to maintain their sobriety during these difficult times.
ďOur commitment has always been to help individuals live a sober-free life, regardless of what his or her previous addiction treatment associations are,Ē begins a spokesperson for Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center in Canaan , Connecticut . ďTo that end, our Drug Relapse Program has expanded, offering treatment options for those who feel that they are at a risk of succumbing to the use of alcohol and/or drugs. We've found that during this time many recovering addicts and alcoholics need additional support and guidance to help solidify the core principles that they have utilized thus far in their journey to recovery. Our Drug Relapse Program participants range from those with 90 days of sobriety to upwards of 5 years of sobriety. The individuals who have longer times of sobriety are proof that addiction is, literally, achievable and is a lifelong struggle; it is one that we are committed to helping people achieve.Ē
Statistics show that 2/3 of all relapses for addiction are likely to occur within the first 90 days, without respect to the particular addiction. The first 90 days of sobriety are among the toughest as the physical withdrawals are still present and manifest themselves in poor memory and concentration or as an increased response to stress, all of which can cause a sudden relapse.
Since its inception, Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center has been committed to creating ways that will help individuals get and remain sober.
The compassionate, caring treatment team at Mountainside is comprised of licensed and certified counselors and social workers as well as an on-staff Nurse Practitioner and a Registered Nurse, both of whom have specialization and extensive experience in drug addiction and alcohol treatment. For clients who may have psychiatric issues and/or a dual diagnosis, Mountainside provides the services of a Psychiatrist who also has specialization in addictions. As a result of its unique, innovative approach to addiction treatment over the past 12 years, Mountainside has become the model for the addiction treatment field.
The program, along with its professional addiction treatment team, has earned national recognition and resulted in Mountainside being invited to Washington by the White House to meet with the White House Drug Czar, John P. Waters, for an in-depth meeting on what makes its program so successful. These accolades did not go unnoticed within the addiction treatment field and resulted in the adoption by many throughout the country of a more holistic approach to drug addiction treatment.
